bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company is casting for
CORAM BOY by Helen Edmundson
22 November - 7 December at KXT
directed by John Harrison & Michael Dean
About the play: Coram Boy is a tale of two cities - London and Gloucester - and two orphans at the Coram Hospital for Foundling Children: Toby, saved from an African slave ship, and Aaron, the abandoned son of the heir to a great estate. On the cusp of the Industrial Revolution, the wealth of England’s aristocracy is built on slavery and children are its commodities. Born poor, or of the wrong sex, or the wrong skin colour, or with a disability, the world’s unwanted children face a terrible future.
Spanning 3 generations, Jamila Gavin’s best-selling novel is at once a glorious love story and an epic Dickensian thriller. It is a spell-binding, heart-breakingly beautiful tale of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, children lost and found, betrayal and murder. And love. And the redemption that love brings.
What we're looking for: We're putting together a large diverse cast of 16 actors to play over 30 roles. Age range 18 - 55, with a split of 8-10 women and 6-8 men. We are looking for actors with strong movement and development skills, and a number of roles will require strong singing ability.
